Like an episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway devised by Marina Abramovic.

This timely performance tackles important questions on artistry, technology, and generational difference.

FAMEHUNGRY is a helter-skelter nose-dive into the TikTok universe and the attention economy, asking what it means to be an artist now. Fusing performance art and very real and very live TikTok Experiences, join award-winning performance artist Louise Orwin as she cosplays as a TikToker in a reallife experiment hunting for fame and fortune. Made in collaboration with an actual Famous TikToker, The Almighty Algorithm, and a host of TikTok-Famous Faces, FAMEHUNGRY asks what the future looks like if all roads lead to TikTok.

About Louise Orwin

Louise is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist working across text, performance and video. She makes research-driven, participatory projects about what it means to identify as a queer femme in a fast-moving, media-saturated world that prizes patriarchal, heteronormative narratives. Her work is fiercely queer, feminist and intersectional and filled with a heady dose of pop culture. She's inspired by cultural trends online and in the real world, and often her work sees her conducting undercover, gonzo-style investigations. British Council ‘Artist to Watch’ (2017) & Edinburgh Showcase Artist (2019), Barbican OpenLab (2019/20), Choreodrome Artist, The Place (2023), The Space Digital Commission (2023)
